“I was deleting few files from my Windows computer and at the time of deletion, mistakenly I have chosen I folder that contained photos of my childhood. Soon after realizing, I visited Recycle Bin to restore those photos but for my astonishment the folder was not visible on Recycle Bin. Can anyone tell me the reason for the issue and the solution to overcome it?”.

This problem is common among computer users especially the one who do not have much knowledge about computer. In case you have met with similar situation then this page will tell you the reason behind it and the way to resolve it. Usually there are few reasons why deleted photos do not get stored in Recycle Bin. Here are they:

Many users do not wish to see the dialogue box and hence disable save option by going to Recycle Bin properties. At that moment, any file you delete will not be redirected to Recycle Bin
  • Using Shift + Delete: Windows operating system has short cut called “Shift + Delete”. If you use these keys to delete any photo from your computer then it will be not saved to Recycle Bin and erased immediately
  • Deleting huge data: Recycle Bin folder can hold only few files based on its size limit. Suppose the deleted photos size is larger than Recycle Bin holding capacity then it will not be stored to Recycle Bin folder
  • Erasing from Windows DOS: Windows DOS function can be used when you have issues with your computer like for deleting viruses, to view hidden files, or in case you have some problem with the hard drive. But users sometime make use of it to delete files and if you accidentally delete important photos then you cannot find them in Recycle Bin folder
